  • Code of Best Practice for consumer offsetting products will be of limited benefit to the environment., FoE, February 19. [2] “Carbon offsetting cannot substitute for cutting emissions here and now. This code will still allow offsets to be sold for our increasingly polluting lifestyles - such as sports utility vehicles and flying on extra weekend holidays. Even the Government acknowledges that offsetting is not a cure for climate change.” FoE Climate and Energy Campaigner Mary Taylor.
